In the Ancestry.com index for the 1860 Ray Co MO census, there is a listing for a John Conners (47, TN) and wife Elizabeth Conners (51, KY) that I believe is actually John and Elizabeth (Curtis/Parman) Cunard.Also in the household is a J.J. Parman (or Perrmon as the the index has it)(17, KY).This J.J. could be Jarvis Parman, son of Elizabeth and Frethias Parman which would strengthen the argument that this Conners family is actually Cunard.If correct, this birth information for Elizabeth would agree with the bio of Jesse Parman as stating that she was born in 1809.
I also found a listing in the Ancestry.com index for the 1870 Ray Co MO census for the family of a John (58, TN) and Elizabeth Kennan (61, KY).The dates for this couple are perfect for being the Cunards from the previous census and also agrees with the 1809 birth of Elizabeth.Also living in this household is John S. Parman (12, MO).If this is actually Elizabeth Curtis Parman Cunard, then this record would also indicate that she is still living as of 1870.Most lineages that I have seen do not have Elizabeth living past 1862.
By the 1880 Ray MO census, John Cunard (68, TN, listed on familysearch.com as Kanard) is listed as living with a Sarah A. (57, VA), so Elizabeth must have died by then.Living next door to the Cunards in 1880 is the family of Samuel Parman (22, KY) with wife Sarah (20, KY) and daughter Alice L. (1, MO).This Samuel Parman is most certainly the John S. Parman of the 1870 census and is probably John Samuel Parman, the son of William H. Parman (another son of Frethias) and Lydia Cunard (Canard) who seems to be a relative somehow (daughter from a previous marriage perhaps?) of John Cunard.BTW, William H. Parman is found in Newton Co MO in 1880 (52, KY) and lists both parents as being born in KY.
Back to 1860, the 1860 Clinton Co MO census (http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~mackley/Mo1860Jpegs/Clinton_60/Clinton_P099.jpg ) has an entry for a J.F. Parman (20, KY) which is probably the Jesse F. Parman of this thread, a couple of years or so before he married Louisa Keeling.Also living in the same household is Jesse's sister Mary (22, KY (in 1880, she lists both parents as KY)), her husband James N. Curtis (24, MO, my ancestor), James' sister Hannah E. (15, MO), and a J.C. Cox (24, KY).Also, a few pages farther (page 101) is another of Frethias' sons, Joseph Parman (26, KY), with wife Mary A. (30, MO), son Albert (3, MO) and daughter M. S. M. (4 months, MO).
